Your child is an individual with their own needs so we start off with an assessment.
What can I expect from a Taster lesson?
Taster lesson (Introductory Lesson) is the first lesson for your child at Eureka! Tuition. This lesson will last up to 60 mins on a One to One basis to assess and explore expectations. This involves a series of questions which will help us assess the standard of the student therefore we can tailor our teaching according to their current level of knowledge. We can select a topic of interest and teach them so they also have a taster of what the lessons will entail. We also advise parents to attend to address any queries/concerns/worries. Parents/Guardians are welcome to sit for the whole lesson if required. After the taster lesson, we encourage the parents and students to have a discussion and decide whether you want to continue with Eureka! Tuition and simply send us an email with your decision!
How does the 4-week trail work?
Once the taster lesson is completed and you are happy to continue lessons with Eureka! Tuition, we recommend you to continue on a one to one basis for the next four lessons which will give some time for the student to adapt to our teaching patterns and also for the tutor to understand student’s strengths and weaknesses. This will give the chance for the tutor to identify the gaps in their knowledge and allow the tutor to tailor their teaching and lesson plan according the that individual student.
4 weeks trial completed…. what happens now?
Once the student has completed the trial period, the parents will be invited for an informal chat with the tutor. At this stage, the tutor will advise you of what the best suitable path is for your child, whether it is to continue one to one basis or alternatively join a small group*. You also have the option to drop out without any obligations. The Tutor will also give an individualised learning plan for your child, which will explain what can be realistically achieved. This is another opportunity for students and parents to discuss about expectations, ideas and concerns with your tutor. If you are happy to continue with Eureka tuition, a student file will be created and everything discussed will be documented. From thereon, student’s progress will be reviewed every 3 months, however, if parents have any queries or concerns in the interim, they are more than welcome to make an appointment with the tutor.
*Biology and Accountancy lessons for A Level students are taught one to one basis or in pairs.
How long is each lesson?
Each lesson will be 1-2 hours long on average unless any special agreements are in place.
Will there be any assessments/test prior to accepting the student?
Yes, there will be a series of questions in the taster class and through out the 4 weeks. At the end of the trial period, these results are compared to the initial results and you will be amazed by the progress your child has made in this short space of time. On the rare occasion, a progress is not made, we can discuss what went wrong and how to rectify and really understand why your child might be struggling.
Will Eureka! Tuition cover the same syllabus as school?
We follow national curriculum for all the subjects taught at Eureka! Tuition. When it comes to exam preparation, we follow the exam board (Edexcel, OCR, AQA, etc..) guideline to help our students achieve highest possible grades.
Does Eureka! Tuition offer One-to-one lessons?

Yes. Our tutors are CRB Checked. CRB certificate will be shown to parents upon request in the Taster lesson.
